Reload this mapCroft House Holiday Cottages at Applethwaite, an unspoilt, rural village nestling at the foot of Skiddaw just over 1 mile from the market town of Keswick in the English Lake District, offer two quality self catering properties. Both properties are VisitEngland Four Stars with peaceful settings and spectacular mountain views.
CROFT CORNER accommodates just 2 people (and a baby in a cot.) It is a ground floor apartment located at Croft House - a victorian country house set surrounded by fields on the outskirts of Applethwaite village - see top photo. Guests who have limited mobility might like to be aware that the accommodation in Croft Corner is all on one level and it is a level path to the property from the car park.
- Entrance through porch into newly refitted kitchen (electric cooker, ceramic hob, microwave, dishwasher, freezer and fridge).
- Lounge/dining room with view over the garden to the shoulder of Skiddaw. Flat screen TV, DVD player and music system.
- Double bedroom with view across farmland to Latrigg. Spacious en-suite bathroom with bath(shower over), hand-basin and toilet.
For CROFTSIDE (for 4) see the "pagelink" above. The owner's website has full details of the accommodation, the views and many more photos for both properties. It also has an up to date, all year availability calendar, weekly/short break rental rates and information about late availability offers. There is also a "reserve online" facility.
